I remember, Chiq was hard to deal with at first because she was a business woman that NEVER EVER took ANY CRAP from anyone! And boy oh boy...she had NO PROBLEMS going off on anyone who got in her way! lmao When we first met, she was cussing EVERYONE OUT. I was like, "Who is she? WTF is her problem? She better not come to me with that BS!" lmao  I, personally did not think I was able to befriend someone of such a MEAN nature. I thought that with both our strong personalities we would clash but thankfully, I was wrong. As a matter of fact, she later came up to me & apologized for cussing her staff out in front of me and my talents and explained the reasons for  her actions (without excusing them.) From that point on, every time she cussed someone out in my presence, I'd just smh and laugh at her. She'd then take a break, look at me & smile like "YEA I KNOW Im wildin out", then continue biting that persons head off. LMAOO...memories!

After we put away our briefcases and got to know each other as WOMEN/PEOPLE (not business women), I was able to see how big her heart was!!!!! She always cooked delicious meals for everyone and was just the sweetest craziest person after taking off that business hat. Whatever she enjoyed, she wanted to share with her friends and even offered me a round-trip ticket to New Orleans to meet her family & taste REAL N.O food. Unfortunately, her life on earth expired before we were able to take that trip. =(

Chiq not only made a difference in my BUSINESS life. She made a difference in my personal life because if it weren't for CHIQ DIVA, I wouldn't have  met my TRUE & SUPPORTIVE FRIENDS- My Suga Wugga, Plait, Kids i manage (DJ B-ez, Stacy, Sionne, Kye) and My babies at BE Magazine (B & Jason)!!!

So everyone, lets sit back and remember Chiq Diva (memories that are big or small/ good or bad) And even if she made the SMALLEST difference in your life, that small itty bitty difference could have snowballed & probably made a BIGGER DIFFERENCE than you think! I truly believe that EVERYBODY we meet in life, somehow, someway has made a difference in it.

Please help us bury @goddessofpr by making ANY MONETARY deposit at Chase Bank account # #915797468 the name is Tamara Mitchum. Lets give our sister a proper burial & a decent home-going. Even the smallest amount (like $5 can make a difference.

And not meaning to sound like an @sshole...I get so tired of those CLAIMING to support a cause/a person/ an event and do nothing BUT TALK ABOUT IT. A true supporter will do, without buying unnecessary BS, to REALLY support where it matters....MAKING A MONETARY DONATION. (trust me...Im willing to give up a few cases of MY DR PEPPER & eating out to HELP OUT) Sure we love & APPRECIATE that you will help promote/spread the word, but if EVERYBODY "spreads the word" and doesn't GIVE...WHATS THE POINT IN SPREADING THE WORD??? Think about this...this is some REAL TALK ish! We're not asking everyone individually to donate thousands of dollars. We are asking you to donate ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY you have to spare. Can you give up a McD meal to be a GOOD PERSON???? Can you please look under your couch cushion; in your piggy bank; in your car's ashtray to donate??

AGAIN please donate & help us bury @goddessofpr by making ANY MONETARY deposit at Chase Bank account # #915797468 the name is Tamara Mitchum. If each and every one of her family members, FRIENDS, associates and strangers can donate...we can bury her in no time...OPEN YOUR HEART.

Before I end this note (which wasnt planned to be so long,) I want to remind you all of this quote: "Treat others the way you wish to be treated." And because I always treat other kids & the elderly the way I wish people will treat my kids & parents...I ALWAYS say, "Treat one's family as you would want others to TREAT YOURS!"

Lastly, please pray for her family...especially her only child; her baby; her life-HER SON. I cant imagine what they are going through but I do know that our prayers can help them through.

Thank you for taking the time to read this note. If for any reason you feel as tho I was rambling...I probably was. Im literally dozing on & off writing this. lmao

T.H.U.G Awards Trailor- The award show that Chiq, herself, produced!
Check out her work!

A-List Talents perform in their first award show- T.H.U.G Awards
(revamp of SOURCE Awards)
Chiq gave us our first opportunity to perform at an Awards show. With our company so new at the time, I am extremely GRATEFUL for that opportunity!

Preparing for T.H.U.G Awards
Chiq Diva handed us a CD & said, "Can U make up a whole routine for this mix of songs with old school dances?" And we did in a total of 6-8 hours (2days) to choreograph, rehearse, clean up the moves & stage the show.

Far away view of A-List Talent's performance

Unfortunately Chiq was catering to all her guests & making them feel welcomed that she didnt have time to take pix with us. =(
